In many ways Trane is a classic American success story that grew into a global one. It began with our founder, James Trane, a Norwegian immigrant who opened his own plumbing shop in La Crosse, WI, in 1885.
With the inspiration of cold Wisconsin winters, James Trane invented a new low-pressure heating system he proudly called the Trane Vapor Heating System. His son, Reuben, was just back from college with a degree in mechanical engineering, so father and son began manufacturing operations in 1910 and incorporated as The Trane Company in 1913.
Damuth Trane is proud to be a part of the Trane name that has identified products and technology that has changed the H.V.A.C industry. As a franchised agent for Trane, Damuth Trane is the exclusive authorized representative of Trane commercial products and services in Hampton Roads and Northeastern North Carolina.
